I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'what reprobates do after some' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't judge whether this works.

'tobacco's in pocket' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'tobacco's' could be 'quids' and 'quids' is present in the answer.
'in' is found in the answer.
No letters remain.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for quids in that I've seen before include "Having a profitable situation" , "Having made a profit" , "Profiting from something" , "Likely to profit" , "Better off" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
